Summer Adventure part 4 - London

London always has a special place in my heart.

Something about not knowing when the rain is gonna come (or maybe the trains actually come on time) makes me feel so calm yet excited at the same time.

My time in London was familiar and relaxing, almost felt like I never left the town couple years back. I spent a lot of time by myself to refamiliarize and take everything in, drinking lots and lots of tea, and I also packed a big box of Ben's Cookies to bring back home with me.

Wish I could have stayed a tiny bit longer but time to go home and back to the reality πŸ™‹Back in London for a very short stay and I could only wish to be here a little longer 😒UntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledGuess who is back back back.UntitleduploadUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitledUntitleduploadUntitledUntitledThankful for adventure with my local friend tonight. London is way too cool πŸ’‚Untitled


Summer Adventure: Vol 3 - Here and There

Summer 2016 has been consisted of:
- Long rides up to the North East, eating a lot of Maine Lobster rolls and ice cream in the middle of the forest.
- Tanning my legs on the dashboard.
- Watching fireworks from a school bench.
- Catching the rain, hiding from the rain.
- Buying plants, watching them grow, watching them die.
- Random backyard wedding.
- Random teary conversations.
- Lots and lots of hugs from families - which I am so grateful for.

Books I have read: I Almost Forgot About You, The Shining and Blood, Bones & Butter. On queue: The Year Of Magical Thinking, the new Harry Potter book.

To do list:
- More wine.
- Outdoor movies & summer concerts.
- Bake more pies despite the weather.
- Be brave and kind.

I went home to Nebraska for a week last week for a little self-retreat and on the last night being home, I stayed up on the couch to watch TV till 2 am. Being in NYC makes me appreciate little things, like having a car to drive to the grocery stores or having a TV to catch up with the RNC. If you know me, you probably know that I don't like main stream music. But I stumbled upon this guy so many times for the last couple months, and this performance on Fallon's really stole my heart. I can't stop listening ever since.


Summer Adventure: Vol 2 - Zurich

After 2 days in Amsterdam (which was way too short for me), we decided to visit Zurich. To be honest I was not too excited to come Switzerland, especially after all the traveling I was doing at the time. I was worried that I would be burnt out and end up not being able to enjoy what Switzerland had to offer. Also, coming to a new country without any prior knowledge or research seemed to be to risky at the time.

Well, it rained the whole two days when I was in Zurich, literally pouring rain, which was a total bummer. When we did manage to go out when the rain recharged and explore the Old Town, and I fell in love with all the lovely architecture and how quiet and calm the town was. The rain actually made the trip pretty relaxing. As we did not have the ideal weather to go out and explore, we took shelter in different coffee shops and bakeries, chocolate stores and so on. I managed to bring home a suitcase full of chocolate, and don't let me started on how embarrassing it was when security at the airport decided to check my carry on luggage - literally - full - of - chocolate.
